HLI (Harmony Lodge, Inc.) offers the Cincinnati area an inexpensive but beautiful high-ceilinged hall for budget-wise receptions, parties or meetings (see images at top and in the Photo Album), and a chorus rehearsal hall with risers. We've been in business since 1980 in our historic building (scroll or page down for our address). Our rentable spaces are summarized as follows:
- Our Hall on the auditorium floor is a great place for family events! We
have hosted birthday, graduation, and other kinds of parties, many receptions (even weddings prior to the reception - see right-hand picture at top of every page), plus the sad occasion of daytime funeral gatherings for a nominal fee (we are near the Spring Grove and Vine Street Hill cemeteries).
Note that we are not a catering hall - you cannot purchase food or drink from us.
Our hall is not really suited in size or budget for a smallish event, such as a bridal or baby shower, or for kid's parties.
In addition to family gatherings and large-family holiday dinners, we've had other daytime and evening events: club, union, and business meetings, art shows, etc.
We rent to family, business, community and friend-oriented groups. We do not offer our facilities for unknown guests or commercial promotional activities, and we do not have a city dance hall license.
For a meeting, we can seat up to 275; for a party (using tables), standard 100, but up to 170.
Read our pages about the Hall features and pricing on the Do-it-yourself (DIY) page and the Enhanced page. Find out more on the Frequently-Asked-Questions page, then use the rental Request form to request a specific date or to inquire about long-term usage.
- Our Rehearsal Hall on the second floor is currently rented on Monday and Tuesday evenings to two barbershop-harmony choruses. Submit the rental Request form if you are interested in using the Rehearsal Hall on other evenings (not Saturday) for choral or meeting purposes. This hall contains risers for the singers.
- Other space on the premises is rented daily to a business and a model railroad club. Read about our regular renters on the Renters and Friends page.
